Guy Ngan created both a kahikatea carving and mural (medium uncertain) for a temporary Bank of New Zealand branch on Queen St, which had been set up while the main branch was undergoing alterations. The carving was inspired by the Auckland landscape with its volcanic cones and craters. The mural consisted of at least four panels and was installed directly opposite the woodcarving.
